Yeah, but no malicious intent like Reed's MO.



Anyway, congrats to Villopoto. Again, Reed hanging around looking for the leader to make mistakes. I liked Reed's admission on the podium, saying that riding fast to catch the leader was not characteristic of him. hahaha.



James is really pissing himself down the tubes. I mean, as I mentioned before, at least in the past when he crashed you knew it was because he was head and shoulders faster than anybody else. Now its just crashing, period. The only way he will get back into the points is if Villopoto has a DNF.



Dungey is still consistent, and I'm gonna add, I don't think this particular track allowed him to showcase his speed.



The woops were the story, and those tough blocks are alive!

Oh, forgot to add. I bummed that SX will not be on the same weekend of the AMA Daytona 200 openers. That totally sucks donkey balls.

I think KTM has linkage these days. Looks good too.

Bird you are correct sir....shows my lack of knowledge of KTM's. Didn't realize they started using linked suspension on the 2011 bikes....very interesting.

Well I guess Dungey can't blame the bike?

Congrats to Villopoto.



Dungey hungry.



Stewart bad start then bad luck.



Weimer, impressive.



Reed, we all know why he doesnt challenge for wins. Crawl back into ur comfort zone and hope others make mistakes.

Looks like Reeds ego outweighed his talent. Last week he got this crazy notion head that he could press for wins rather then wait for everyone to crash. When he comes back next week all were gonna hear is how brave and tough he is.

I dont understand the talking heads suckfest when it comes to Reed. Im tired of hearing about how no factories wanted him and poor forgotten Reed had to fend for himself. Thats such bullshit. Dude could have ridden for any factory but his ego is so big he couldnt get along with anyone and decided to become his own boss.

Its hard to believe that Stewart is a complete non factor in this championship. Nice ride by Weimer. I think were going to see more of him up front as he gets comfortable with the 450.

Ok you asked for it.



Reed is so brave and tough.



No factories wanted him and he had to fend for himself. No bullshit.



Reed is so good he could have ridden for any factory, but his ambition matched his talent and he started his own team, with his own money!!



Meanwhile bubba skipped the outdoors because he was too scared, and now he might as well skip SX as well. No ambition just wasted talent.

JK I agree - what a load of bollocks alright ( the commentators talk suck every week) and NO because of who gets along with who or doesn't.

Fact is that he didn't accept a ride for less $$$$ with all the cutbacks so yer he made the call and dipped into his own good on him but gets stabbed in the back by you guys typical LOL......he's the bad guy heck you guys thrive on it like the ol days of cowboys and indians grow up ffs.

If it was bubba doing the same - oh the outpour of support which ofcourse is typical rooting as you guys describe it is a given but no not a import rider.

Bad luck to bubba but I'm afraid the head has lost much of the talent.

I reckon Weimer got the fire inside due to Dungy's pass on him the other week good on him.

You guys keep using Bubba as an example to hold against us Yanks. Bubbas an amazing talent but his screws are loose. I look at guys like Dungey and Villopoto as pillars of exemplary riding and class.

Just about everything you say about Bubba I agree with.

This year Bubba hasn't been able to outdo all the other riders in certain sections like he has in the past. It seems a couple of years ago there was often a section of the the track where JS could triple where no other riders could. Or he could pull something off that even Ricky Carmichael could hardly believe he was doing.

whats the deal?

a. is he just slower?

b. is everyone else just faster (everyone included. not just the top guys. because there doesn't seem to be any jumps all riders can't tackle the same way)

c. the tracks are designed to not offer that edge at all. (conspiracy theory)

d. none of the above

e. all of the above
